Everything is a PLUG-Talk topic.  Except answers to technical questions
about using OSS software, which belong on PLUG.

Does using a Linux-based computer to write an email about Atheism make it
topical?  Is President Obama's foreign policy topical because the White
House uses Drupal on Linux?

So tell me, what TECHNOLOGICAL problem are you trying to solve here?

Also, have you done ANY RESEARCH AT ALL?  Are you so lazy that you can't be
bothered to ask a search engine, and instead demand that your servants (the
people on PLUG, whom you have never met, nor done any favors for) carefully
answer your questions accurately, without causing the slightest offense?

Hints:
"Fair Use" "Betamax Ruling" "Time/Space/Format Shifting" "Private Copying"

Wasting my breath for fun,
